Unity Games Charter - Rev 6

UNITY GAMES - INTRODUCTION AND GOALS (Please READ)
Welcome to Unity Games. We are an open discussion group which
includes members of various game groups in the Eastern
Massachusetts and surrounding areas (parts of RI and NH) plus
interested gamers from the region.
The "Unity Games" list is aimed at discussing games and game
related events in the local area. The emphasis is on German/Euro
style games and open game gatherings in the area where you can
find opponents. Generally, the list serves as a pool of
interested gamers from the area. It is acceptable to look for
specific opponents to specific games (for example, "Looking for
Battle Cry Opponent...", "Need 4 for Partnership Lost Cities",
etc). If you wish to form a game get-together, you can ask for
recruits using the list.
I also see no reason why people cannot post for-sale or for-trade
messages as well. Sometimes it is easier to sell something to a
local - saves shipping, payment hassles, etc. I would say,
however, no auctions on this forum.
The list is moderated - but with free and open postings. Should
any discussion get badly off topic or out of hand, we reserve the
right to warn and possibly suspend or ban existing members.
Harsh - yes, but it keeps the group focused on local game related
If you have a members you would like to add, just ask me
(dber@...) or Mark Edwards (dangermouse@...) and we
can invite them to the list. In addition, if someone is already
registered with egroups (it's free and seemed very easy), they
can sign-up easily at:
After being added to the list, it's courteous to announce
yourself to the group. Something short is fine - describing who
you are, general area you live in and the games you like to play.
We also have a small database you might consider adding yourself
This list should be a resource - to keep interested people in the
area informed of the various open gaming efforts. It also serves
as a pool of players looking to try a specific game which they
might otherwise have difficulty finding players. General game
discussion is also fine.
Finally, be aware that the Unity Games list can generate quite a
bit of email traffic. In it's first month, there was an average
of 13 emails per day - about 400 for the entire month of July.
You can switch to Digest mode (where you only receive 1 or 2
emails containing a digest of the posts for each day) or can view
by Web browser. These options can be set at the
http://www.egroups.com/group/Unity_Games website or you can email
me (see below) to change the option for you. If this will be a
problem for you, you can always UNSUBSCRIBE by sending an email
Enjoy the list.
